think the next four years will be better for you than the first four years of an obama presidency? i think that the economy -- you can look at some macrostatistics and say things are better in some ways, but i think there are still people who have a lot of doubt about what's going to happen next. talk to anybody who is doing focus groups now and ask people in groups, what does the president plan to do in another four years? people don't know. and so mitt romney still has an opportunity, i think, to not only say -- >> you can say the same about mitt romney. >> you could, you could, but the president has got a record of four years that a lot of americans aren't happy with. he's not coming close to driving that message. he's still doing one event a day. still more likely to do a bad television interview that says nothing or creates a negative story or has some old video pop out. this is not left wing pundits or reporters who don't like mitt romney. this is what every republican i talk to is saying, scratching their head saying how can he continue to waste another day? i'm looking at my

for over two years and the presidential race for a while it seems very competitive. president obama saenz to be ahead by about five points, and some of that has helped change the trajectory of the race. earlier this month tommy thompson seems to have the momentum and at this point his democratic rival tammy baldwin seems to be within the margin of error or a little ahead. >> why is that? >> mauney best guess is the bald when serge if you want to call it that corresponds with what president one is getting from governor romney. back in august it seems and still is governor thompson was perceived as the best republican nominee to the if he had a very competitive primary. paul ryan nominated for the vp commesso it seems like suddenly wisconsin is back in the republican column. >> and abby livingston is denied the and only debate or is there a series? >> i don't know that off the top of my head but it is going to be an interesting evening because governor thompson is a statewide brand. he is known not as governor thompson, but tommie and he will be speaking as a liberal. that is too libe

look at the election as it shapes up. i drew this cartoon about one year ago. obama is trying to ignite the economy, and the republicans are trying to -- well. [laughter] this is an illustration. it is several panels -- about what the problem really is. we complained about democrats and republicans running for the presidency. it is really the guys in congress that are the problem. this is "kicking the debt can down the road." i have to give a -- i have to get up because i cannot read it from here. this is when it was still in the primary season. [laughter] sarah palin. i have that fire in my belly. i know the feeling. the best thing you can do with a politician is to use his own words against him. this was soon after the president's state of the union address. we have come too far to turn back now. this is donald trump and the mitt romney over there. "you guys hold him down, and i will cut his hair off." obama is pointing at mitt romney. america, i smell something fishy. there we go. this is the president painting the economy over there which has wilted. we have it flip-flops her
